  • Darkheart Thicket
    • Addressed an issue where Strangling Roots will still spawn even if Oakheart is defeated while casting the spell.
    • Addressed an issue where Crushing Grip will go off if the boss is defeated while gripping a player.
  • The Everbloom
    • Addressed an issue where Infested Icecaller’s Cold Fusion can target pets.
  • Waycrest Manor
    • Addressed an issue where some Jagged Hounds are not damaged by Wildfire.
    • Wildfire now only damages creatures in combat.

Player versus Player

  • Verdant Aspirant’s Wand is now purchasable from Seltherex.

The lack of tuning is just embarrassing at this point.


This is an insult, NERF DH! We are drowning here!


NERF DH is it to much to ask :frowning:


Apparently it is, maybe the 124th post will finally tip them off that something is horribly wrong?


Balance changes please Blizzard. Please.


An amazing AWC weekend followed by oblivious pvp changes. Just typical blizzard things. Might as well just make it clear that devs are done with this season.


Nerf DH please.

This is an insult to your playerbase. Nerf DH and do tuning already

I agree, the wow team needs to refocus and group. They have spread their crew too thin (Era,SoD,WotLK, Retail). It’s a slap to the face when SoD is getting feedback what seems, almost every single day. We all pay the same to play, why do they get treated far better? O.o

say, can you address an issue to blizzard, regarding the Fearless Spectator and Renowned Explorer titles being lost and regained at random? i’ve (along with several others) mentioned this bug in countless bug report threads, and blizz gives us no response, figured they’d respond if a Community Council member addresses the issue, they might listen to you
